National Exile : A 21st Century Novel about Nobility, Poverty, and Brutality
If you liked Les Miserables, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, or Divergent, you will love National Exile. People have lived in poverty and ignorance for generations. Thousands of people are dying out of cold and hunger. Their own administration would kill many innocents in order to lead the country to a darker place. Years ago, a nine-year-old boy was killed for stealing money to buy medicine for his ill mother. His death was a tragedy that was never forgotten. A young woman, in her early twenties, decides to change things around her. She and her team joined the administration in hopes for a better future. They would provide food and care to those in need. In the process, they met many heart breaking cases. They were forced to witness the cruelty of the human race. They saw atrocities that have hunted them for years. They saw the physically abused men and women begging for their lives. They saw mutilated faces that could've made a rock cry. They saw the brutalized people who wanted to escape their reality. They saw the orphans who wanted nothing but to see the shadows of their lost parents. They saw the wrinkles on aging men and woman who wanted to scream from the oppression. They saw the infants of martyred parents who didn't even know why they cried. They saw the tears of those who screamed, "Give us our home back." So, for that ladies and gentlemen, please hear them out."
